While video consumption continues to grow drastically, organizations have realized the importance of ensuring their content is not just reachable but accessible and decipherable to all of their audience. The message that is graphically presented in a video/audio needs to be made available in a manner that complements the flow of information. Through VIDIZMO's auto transcription service, customer organizations can auto-generate closed captions for their videos using our inbuilt transcription engine. In this article, we will show you how to enable VIDIZMO’s inbuilt auto transcription engine.

VIDIZMO also renders automatic, machine-generated transcriptions from transcoding providers such as Azure Media Services. To learn more, refer to the on How to Enable AMS' Machine Generated Transcriptions in VIDIZMO.
